Will Crist, Pilgrim on the 405

The Pilgrim on the 405 has been watching businesses since he began working with his father at Valley Auto Supply in Edinburg, Texas when he was eight years old. His dad paid him 25¢ an hour to dust the shelves, and there were lots of shelves to be dusted.

From the 405, one of the busiest freeways in the world, the pilgrim watches the many businesses in SoCal. During the past 30 years he has often been asked in to help business owners and professonals rediscover, clarify and build upon their values, hopes and dreams.

Along his way, the pilgrim studied philosophy, theology, technical writing, business, motivation, sales processes, and Internet marketing. He is always surprised at how theological insights and business practices mesh to create stronger momentum.

After seminary at the Episcopal Theological School in Cambrige, Massachusetts, the pilgrim was ordained a priest in the Episcopal Church and worked in congregations in the Diocese of West Texas.
